2017 Engineering Excellence Awards

The ACEC/CT Engineering Excellence Awards  honor the very best of Connecticut’s engineers and the projects they have created for our citizens. We congratulate the engineers for their creativity and professionalism.

We also want to thank the clients and owners for making these projects possible. Their vision inspires us to greater achievements. And thanks to the many other professionals: architects, engineers, contractors, suppliers and others who contributed to the effort and built the project from the engineers’ designs. In a real sense, these are team awards; without your effort, these projects would not be possible.
